"Emotion, melody and desired amounts of heaviness"...The "breathtaking" debut "Methods To End It All"
Featuring former Paradise Lost drummer Lee Morris as well as a guest appearance by ex Cradle of Filth backing vocalist Sarah Jezebel Deva, you could be forgiven the assumption that this release would stroll down an extreme metal memory lane. Thankfully this debut is anything but an exercise in nostalgia and is in fact a dynamic gothic rock album that compares favourably to the likes of Katatonia. (Powerplay Magazine)

The ground-breaking epic “METHODS TO END IT ALL” from Northern Ireland’s Melodic Gothic Metallers CREATION’S TEARS.
HERE’S WHAT THE RECORD INDUSTRY SAYS:
These heroes of the dour make a compulsive argument in favour of all things doom and gloom with their glossy, melodic melancholy...for fans of Paradise Lost, Anathema, Katatonia, My Dying Bride. (8/10) GILES MOORHOUSE – ROCKSOUND Jan 2011 Issue 143
Effective and affecting...make a note of the name. Malcolm Dome - Classic Rock
Don’t count Creation’s Tears into the clone department. Beautiful melodic gothic rock/metal. Creation’s Tears’ Methods To End It All is a very good opinion on how gothic rock/metal should be played, with emotion, melody and desired amounts of heaviness. A good option for everyone in the scene with both an open mind and ear. (8/10) Metalstorm.net
In the ten years Metalireland has been going, I’ve yet to see an unsigned band reach for quite so much as this. The effort is staggering. I admit to being quite breathtaken with what Creation’s Tears have done on here...Superbly, maturely written...The quality of their songwriting, and the quality of their execution, means that the right ears should at least hear it...Those right ears should start with every metaller in Ireland (4.1 / 5) Ciaran Tracey - Metalireland
Singer/guitarist Brian Eddie Reynolds has a strong voice which adds to the tragic, emotive feel of these songs while at the same time the uplifting melodies of the guitars caress the listener and draw you in with powerful hooks. This Irish quartet may have the pedigree to attain the heights of the acts that influenced them. Considering that the songwriting here was strong enough to tempt Morris into returning to work on a metal album, that should tell you why this release is worthy of much more than the “ex members of such an act” tag.
